Following an increase in incidents of attacks and robberies by motorcycle riders, residents of Nairobi’s Kilimani neighborhood have expressed worry.
The hoodlums on wheels have been robbing unaware motorists in broad daylight of their cell phones and other valuables.
On Thursday, a motorbike thief assaulted a man who appeared to be using his phone along Maalim Juma Road, grabbed it, and then sped off.
The thug made a couple rounds pretending to be a boda boda rider hunting for clients before picking on him.
Soon after, he appeared to slow down and turn on the brakes before grabbing the phone and running away.
Other pedestrians tried in vain to stop him, but he sped off and vanished.
